Case Study 91 - Repairing Concrete Stained & Acid Etched Anodized Aluminum Window Frames


Refurbish old paint without painting. Painted aluminum entrance canopy cleaning, restoring, maintaining and refinishing.

>> View Case Study here.

Condition:  The new clear anodized aluminum factory finish was stained and etched during the construction of this Longboat Key, Florida custom home. During construction acidic concrete slurry, mortar and corrosive cement splashed on the anodized aluminum window frames and anodized aluminum doors. The silver colored anodized finish was acid etched, corroded, scratched and oxidized. The G.C. requested that we get the concrete, cement and mortar overspray stains off and get the acid etching out of the anodized aluminum surfaces. As acid burned anodized aluminum cleaning and chemically etched anodized aluminum refinishing experts, our client had confidence we could recondition, refinish and restore the damaged anodized aluminum surface finishes.

York Property Company Solution:  To clean, repair, renew and protect the damaged anodized aluminum surfaces we refurbished the anodized aluminum with our acid etched anodized aluminum restoration cleaning and oxidized anodized aluminum reconditioning system. We had to remove the concrete, cement and mortar overspray, splatter and debris while repairing and refinishing the anodized aluminum without causing any more damage to the thin anodized anodic finish. Although the anodized aluminum building facade window mullions and doors were seriously damaged, our anodized aluminum construction cleaning, restoration and rejuvenating program allowed us to clean, repair, refurbish and restore the acid etched and oxidized anodized aluminum to "like new". The anodized aluminum is protected from further corrosion, oxidation and pitting.




Case Study 92 - Removing Peeling Paint from Bronze Anodized Aluminum Window Frames

We specialize in anodized aluminum preventive maintenance, anodized aluminum refinishing, anodized aluminum power washing and anodized aluminum pressure cleaning.
>> View Case Study here.

Condition:  The Kawneer Class I exterior bronze anodized aluminum window frames on these commercial buildings in Tampa, Florida were painted after they were installed on the building. The brown paint coating on the anodized aluminum window frames were peeling and the old, brittle, flaking paint had to be removed. The owners wanted the anodized aluminum window frames to be restored to the original luster of new brown colored anodized aluminum window frames, sills and flashing. If the anodized aluminum was not coated once it was clean and refurbished the anodized aluminum and anodic layer would bleach, stain, acid etch and oxidize. To maintain the integrity of the brown colored bronze anodic finish ownership requested the anodized aluminum building facade window frames be coated and protected with the York Property Company anodized aluminum clear protective coating.

York Property Company Solution:  To refurbish and recondition the old, faded and contaminated exterior anodized aluminum window frames we had to chemically strip the paint off the anodized aluminum finish without damaging the brown anodic layer. Removing the paint was time consuming and required our skill, expertise and experience as commercial anodized aluminum window frame restoration contracting specialists. If the window frames were bleached, burned, oxidized, acid etched or scratched the anodized aluminum would have to be painted again. The anodized aluminum reconditioning program got the paint off of the anodized aluminum window frames safely and refurbished the anodized aluminum dark brown color and finish. The anodized aluminum protective coating enhanced the reflective sheen and gloss while protecting the anodized aluminum from the sun, mineral deposits, calcium stains and caustic airborne contaminants.

Condition:  During Hurricane Katrina the black anodized aluminum metal finishes on this commercial building in New Orleans, Louisiana were scratched, dented and damaged by wind driven airborne particulate and debris. The black anodized aluminum doors, anodized aluminum storefront and anodized aluminum window frames were scratched, marred, scuffed, dull and faded as the wind driven debris abraded the surface of the anodized aluminum metal finishes.

York Property Company Solution:  Working with Zurich Insurance we were able to ascertain what anodized aluminum metal damage was hurricane related and what was general weathering - anodized aluminum color fading, anodized aluminum finish oxidation, anodized aluminum surface corrosion, anodized aluminum pitting and anodized aluminum staining. With our oxidized anodized aluminum refinishing and scratched anodized aluminum metal restoration expertise our metal surface analysis and metal repair specification allowed Zurich Insurance to settle with the buildings owner to clean, refinish and restore the specified anodized aluminum surfaces.

>> View Case Study here.

Condition:  A lack of remedial maintenance washing of the exterior dark bronze anodized aluminum window frames and panels on these thirty-three year old owner occupied commercial buildings in Dallas, Texas caused the brown anodized aluminum window frames and panels to bleach, stain, acid etch and oxidize. As the anodized aluminum window frames were not washed and polished they ages from exposure to airborne and waterborne contaminants, pollutants, acid rain, sun damage and u.v. exposure. The lack of maintenance washing contributed to the corrosion and pitting on the bronze anodized aluminum metal finishes. Ownership had not followed the original anodized aluminum manufacturers washing and preventive maintenance schedule since the anodized aluminum window frames were new.

York Property Company Solution:  Building ownership realized that anodized aluminum window frame / panel washing and maintenance was vital to maintain the thirty-three year old bronze anodized aluminum anodic finish over the long-term. We were contacted to analyze the degraded, stained, corroded, pitting and oxidized exterior bronze anodized aluminum mullions, window frames, siding and cladding panels. With the findings of our analysis and specification we were contracted to clean, wash, refinish and maintain the contaminated bronze anodized aluminum finishes. Our anodized aluminum cleaning and refinishing system cleaned, refurbished and protected the anodized aluminum window frames / panels restoring the original natural brown color, gloss and sheen to the bronze anodized finish.




Case Study 95 - Restoring New Muriatic Acid Etched Clear Anodized Aluminum Window Frames

We are experts at cleaning anodized aluminum, washing anodized aluminum, pressure cleaning anodized aluminum and refinishing anodized aluminum.

Condition:  The new clear anodized aluminum window frames and the 10' high anodized aluminum lanai door frames on this custom home in Lafayette, Louisiana were damaged, stained, oxidized and acid etched by the brick mason contractor acid cleaning the brick above the anodized aluminum window frame extrusions. The muriatic acid restoration cleaning agent flash etched and burned all of the building facade clear anodized aluminum. The milky white chemical staining left the silver metallic anodized aluminum damaged, flash oxidized and acid burned beyond repair by traditional construction cleaning methods and materials.

York Property Company Solution:  The General Contractor retained us as acid etched anodized aluminum construction cleaning contracting experts. We were contracted to clean, repair and restore the chemical stained and muriatic acid burned anodized aluminum storefront window frames and anodized aluminum lanai door frames. This project required that we repair the acid etching damage and return the anodized aluminum to the original condition without painting, capping or replacing any of the anodized aluminum extrusions. The two storey acid etched anodized aluminum residential building facade storefront was repaired and restored to the original color and sheen specification with our acid etched anodized aluminum construction cleaning and restoration system.

>> View Case Study here.

Condition:  The factory applied white paint finish on the new exterior painted aluminum window frames had started cracking and peeling due to interior paint being applied at the factory vs. exterior paint as specified. The paint finish was prematurely fading, flaking off and peeling. The G.C. required that this situation be remedied immediately as the luxury ocean front residence in Clearwater Beach, Florida was still under construction.

York Property Company Solution:  As painted aluminum window frame restoration contracting specialists we were contracted to mobilize on-site and chemically strip the failing paint and abrade the window frames down to the mill finish aluminum. We could not paint over the failing paint as the bond line adhesion was compromised. After the stripping and surface cleaning was complete we primed and then spray applied the originally specified paint to all exterior painted aluminum window frame surfaces.

Condition:  The new Class I bronze anodized aluminum storefront window frames and anodized aluminum doors on this large construction project in Rockledge, Florida were oxidized and acid etched during construction. The factory finished anodized aluminum surface finish was acid burned, blemished and stained whitish gray with lime contaminated debris, acidic water and stucco overspray. The stucco contractor failed to tape the window frame perimeter edge correctly allowing acidic stucco to leech onto the fragile bronze anodic layer. The anodized aluminum new construction project was compromised by the stucco and lime residue, white stucco splatter, scarring and acid burns.

York Property Company Solution:  The general contractor contracted us to clean, repair and restore the damaged, oxidized and acid etched bronze anodized aluminum window frames. We removed the acid burns and white colored stains on the new anodized aluminum window frame sections as if they had not been acid etched, stained or damaged. The architect specified that we repair the acid etching damage and return the anodized aluminum to the original condition. The bronze anodized aluminum looked new and clean when the anodized aluminum construction cleaning and anodized aluminum stucco and acid etching removal program was complete.
